our investors misguided? mark: have a look at where european equities are trading, under 30 minutes into -- until the end of the trading session. that is the longest losing stretch since february. takengs continuing to center stage, which brings me to standard chartered, the lender that makes most of its earnings in asia. shares falling as much as 4.7% today, the most since june 27. it reported first-quarter profits that missed estimates, revenue falling in all its main divisions. bill winters looking to show he is restoring the losses and that is what investors want. -- whichsharp drop in drove them to their first annual loss in 1989.
in august they said they would probably miss the future profitability target because of an uncertainty in -- uncertain regulatory environment. bc, at standard and ages they did not fall as much and they have come back more due to their focus in asia. it is barclays, lloyds, and rbs who have been held -- hit the hardest. matthew beesley will be commenting on that chart in just a few seconds. our biggest inner is money supermarket.com. shares jump 11% higher, the biggest increase in three years, reporting a 12% rise in third-quarter revenue. they say they are on track for a record year and have confidence in meeting their full-year expectations. insurance growth continues to accelerate boosted by investment in technology.

the trajectory is lower, and the s&p is at the lows of the day. it is a broad decline with all 10 industry groups lower. we are seeing a little bit of an uptick in nervousness surrounding the u.s. election. take a look at the bloomberg here. dollar-yenat two-week volatility and two-month volatility. two-week volatility is the white line and two month is the blue line. showing that with the election results coming, the election coming in the next week there is some concern, at least an increase in concern although less than it was back in september. back to today's session and some of the earnings lsappointments we are seeing, brands coming out with preliminary numbers for the third quarter as well as october preliminary comparable sales weaker.
a 10 is cutting its forecast for seeing soft sales in the first quarter of 2017. in sayinges coming it's our earnings are going to be at the low end of its forecast for the full year. seeing some pressure as a result of what is going on in the bond market with the selling resuming. two-year yields are heading higher, 2.86%, that has been putting pressure on interest rates. as a result, the yield curve is widening a little bit out. to ae getting back up little bit of a widening of the 10,ad the between two and which in theory is good news, a good indicator for the u.s. economy although the yield curve has been some would say a little bit broken as an indicator. vonnie: it has been very flat and it does not look like we
want to invert. julie hyman, thank you. let's check in with the bloomberg first word news. mark: a new nationwide poll has donald trump pulling into the lead over hillary clinton in the abc news washington post tracking survey of likely voters. 45%, the first time he has led since may. the survey has a margin of error of three percentage points. u.s. attorney general loretta lynch is said to still have confidence in fbi director james comey, who has, under fire for -- director comey and the attorney general are said to have met briefly on monday. six people dead and at least 10 others injured after a collision involving a commuter bus and school bus today in baltimore, maryland. no children were aboard the school bus. no word on what caused the crash

buckets. value is focused on oil stocks and material stocks. the recent earnings season across europe and the u.s. has shown generally a beat, financials and especially energy stocks. on the growth side, it is they are we see the weakness. you can see health care companies have disappointed. the yield curve picking up in most developed markets. investors will put those two things together and point out the disparity between value and growth, and ask is this the time to start buying value. and remainike europe more interested in europe and emerging markets relative to the u.s. and japan. i was just looking at our earnings analysis function, 62% of the companies on the stoxx 600 have beat estimates and according to jpmorgan that is
.he best since 2014 the stoxx 600 down for seven consecutive days. we have had aew: reset of expectations post brexit, the earnings bar has been reset. some of the conventions of that universe has started to beat estimates. standard and hsbc, they will not hit us hard as they are domestic oriented. same thathey have the interest margin pressures that lenders are facing from increased qe and low rates in the u.k., and they are benefiting from this renaissance and emerging markets, or markets outside the developed world. vonnie: given your thesis relative to growth and stocks, are you changing anything to your portfolio or waiting for certain events to pass such as
the next rate increase, the election, jobs day? matthew: we have been adding money to emerging markets and toward the eastern world consistently throughout this year. we have been very lowly weighted and emerging-market stocks. when we look at the valuation and growth trade-off, emerging markets have much better value with much better growth, and without the risk we see in the developed world. we are all talking about the u.s. election ahead of next week , but there is a big hefty election program in europe for us to deal with as investors in the next six to nine months. generally look at the past three years, emerging markets stocks have lagged and now trade at a deep discount. vonnie: are you buying a whole basket of emerging-market stocks or du look at specific countries? matthew: we have been looking heavily at rizzo or things are
not good -- at brazil where things are not good but they are better, and toward korea is well. there is still some geographies we remain guarded against, china for one. mark: matthew beesley, head of global equities at handers. vonnie: lots more to talk about with matthews, but happening right now, donald trump and mike pence are campaigning in valley forge, pennsylvania. you can watch this on bloomberg as live go. more on politics ahead as both candidates seem to be preparing for a postelection battle. this is bloomberg. ♪
mark: live from london and new york, counting you down to the european close, 17 minutes away. vonnie: you are mark barton and i am vonnie quinn in new york. becausemove to politics the hillary clinton and donald trump campaigns are gearing up for a close election battle, deploying volunteers and lawyers to monitor polls and possibly challenge election results across the country. trump is speaking live in pennsylvania. joining us is ben bodie of bloomberg politics. staff at there is every election to make sure things are going smoothly. are there many more being hired on each side this year? ben: there is some indication there is. a lot more funding has gone into the republican group. robert mercer has put about $500,000 in, which is one of its
destinations in years. we know this is something they are gearing up for and we know they have also got the court. the democrats have taken the republicans to get -- to court on their poll tracking efforts between the rnc and trump campaign. good campaigns do this, it is how they get out the vote and make sure things go smoothly if there is even a rain delay. it is also something there making sure goes right as best they can. vonnie: given that these are part of, employees on both sides, is that mean we can expect more litigation or accusations and counter accusations then if these people were not hired? ben: it can be difficult to tell. sometimes the lawyers focus as another -- function as another set of monitors. you have the poll watchers and people running the polls, and
sometimes the lawyers might provide a legal opinion in case one is requested. there might not be any conflict. certainly if there is any call for litigation by the campaigns, that can be a political or financial call, they will be there collecting evidence and giving their contrary opinion on a moment to moment races. mark: we are hearing that james comey, the fbi director has gained the confidence of -- has won the confidence of attorney general loretta lynch. that is some good news i suppose for james comey, but the attacks continue from hillary clinton's camp? ben: absolutely. they really feel that they have a limited number of days, seven at this point, to get through the two or three news cycles it takes to sort of return to the poll status quo, and bring us
back into the polls after a negative story like the one that broke on friday when comey wrote his letter. they are coming out and going negative against him, and hoping they can return to that poll status quo or she has a two to four point lead as quickly as possible. brody, bloomberg politics. a week to go. pundits predicting how the u.s. presidential race will play out and markets. the stock market has a clear-cut view on which industries are at risk. bank stocks perform the best when donald trump is in the lead wellonsumer goods perform when clinton is in the lead. the industry groups that we tend to bring up, health care, financials, and energy, how will they be hit depending on who wins or loses? is just hillary
clinton is a much more of a known quality. we all know about her and regulating prices, changing the exclusivity period for biologics. there is a democratic focus on clean energy and financials, she has talked about breaking up the banks and increasing tax breaks on interest for firms. volumeeased tax on high trading. matters havely changed things a little bit since friday. if trump wins, what reaction do we get in u.s. equities? that themy sense is market has been expecting a clinton victory. when you look at the writings of the street, strategists are talking about a clinton victory. if there is a trump victory it
is a flight to quality. you are going to get a relief rally. vonnie: where will people be nts? will there be speculators going into this and will it be mostly through the currency channel? matthew: i think it will be in there will be people wearing outside the u.s. about a trump victory. japanese have been very vocal about what it might mean for their economy and security, and the yen will react accordingly. i think across europe, europe during a trump victory in during a risk off market, you would expect them to outperform u.s. equities. vonnie: we heard from the bank of japan today and they did not change anything.
keep things as calm as possible until things are over, but what will we hear from the federal reserve, the same thing? matthew: i think that is why the analysts believe you will not see any changed interest rates and the federal reserve has been team -- teen to keep things quiet and contra -- noncontroversial until post election day. beyond that day there is a sense around the world of all central banks watching each other and seeing who will blink first when it comes to this easing experiment, and what will happen if a central bank does we -- blink. mark: i want to hear your view on this news, bloomberg has obtained this letter that he sent investors last week. them thatally said to stocks in the uk could fall as much as 80% due to recession.
about 43fund has lost percent this year and he says shares will come under pressure because the ftse has climbed 30% over five years even as earnings fell 80%. he is probably doubling down or who knows what he is thinking. could he, 80%? this is where we have been since brexit. just to put that in perspective. matthew: 80% is a gigantic move even in the history of 2008 and 2000 where we have the technology crash. pointrse he does make a in a sideways manner, the market is hot since it's post-brexit lows. if you believe mark carney, the dark days of the u.k. economy will be coming in 2018 and perhaps as rates grow gradually, perhaps with a trump presidency, maybe there are some dark clouds

because the big data points here in the u.k. today with pmi, a slowdown in manufacturing growth in october and the headline factory gauge was at 54.3 last month, down for a tube year high -- two year high, which separates acceleration from the traction. it was drove at the robust pace. issues of input and output prices, this is what is interesting, surging to the highest in more than five years. the white line is manufacturing input prices. blue line is manufacturing output prices. look how they have risen, andifically since brexit sterling declined, so we have measures of input and output surging to the highest in more than five years, showing the double-edged impact of the pound weakening. the increase in purchasing costs was one of the steepest in pmi in nearly 25 year history. keep an eye on the level of sterling and how it impacts
and put an output. the big data point in time today was the manufacturing at pmi, which rose to the highest level in two years. this chart is wonderful. this compares the chinese manufacturing pmi, the blue china,he space satellites manufacturing index. the official pmi is in blue and the wife is space -- the white is spaceno. like the more true to the actual number analysts say. china monitors over 6000 industrial facilities across china from face imagery and uses proprietary algorithms to measure levels of manufacturing activity using surface material classification. the white line has been below the blue line and it has been
below 50, which tells us it is this in writing. what is interesting is that they are closing in on each other. not every day we speak about s china manufacturing index or satellites. there are still beauty of the bloomberg terminal. vonnie: i love that. poverty,doing up for too, where spots of poverty are particularly ingrained from space and there are many ways to do that. we'll keep our eye on that. i'm taking a look at something living in the u.s., the dollar index. it is down .6 of 1%, just below 98 so strong. the euro and yen are both stronger today. a little bit risk off from gold prices, nearly 1300 dollars at 1.5%. look at crude oil groping 46-40 -- 46.42, down 1% and that on

then, they will be looking at higher education. he is compromising and his personal affairs of not changed but he will take the economy through brexit and many us out of there. mark: brexit negotiations are ongoing, so are they thinking of a new governor? >> it is tricky. she is probably happy he stays until 2019 but as negotiations toch climax, she will have hunt for a successor for mark carney, one with relevant skills and confidence at a turkey time. and that person will have to inherit pretty much the plan with a deal that theresa may can strike and they will inherit the post brexit economy as mark exits himself. vonnie: i want to bring in boris from bloomberg in new york. talk about the federal reserve meetings because it is this week
and no one is expecting anything this week but three of the primary dealers actually say they are not looking for anything in december. boris: that his rights. all 22 primary dealers say they will not be a rate hike. three of them are making consensus calls, saying that december is not going to be on the table for the fed either. they are saying that yellen and day that is not in favor of a rate hike. vonnie: i would say that is fewer than i would've anticipated looking at the market because the majority in the market looking for a hike, one quarter and we are talking about three out of 23. should it because bert are no hike in december? -- shouldn't more be calling for no hike in december? boris on: the fed board, they have been communicating for a
while that they are getting anxious for a rate hike, so the data has been mixed, but the rhetoric is doing a good job from the market and the majority of economists at post brexit banks that the fed will raise before europe. julie: boris -- mark: the rate hike cycle will be the slowest and possibly the shallowest and fed. boris: that is right. it is almost irrelevant when they go. the bond market is pricing in with a handful of rate hikes within the next three years. whether they go in december january or may, the path is very clear for the bond market and for the majority of these primary dealers. it will be shallow and slow going and it will take a long time to normalize. vonnie: simon kennedy, as with the federal reserve does it come less relevant now to the boe given all of the problems at
this point? simon: i think it is still an issue. the federal reserve is on hold and that is less likely that the pound will fall further against the dollar. all things considered. that is good for the bank of england. we were talking about inflation brewing in the u.k., so i think the bank of england will be happy the fed is not raising rates. tok: and 2019, coming back the theme of central banks, it will not just be mark carney. arerexit negotiations ongoing, maybe carney will push to stay longer. pushing that aside, draghi lee's the ecb, two central bankers leaving in six months. andn: i think october november for draghi and jim for mark carney. if you are a central bank are promotion, hold on until 2019 and polisher vb cap.
certainly -- cb up. certainly, that shows the markets are wobbly. vonnie: what a primary dealers saying about the follow-up and what markets there might be? with fed interest-rate hikes last year, will he have another experience like that? forwards: no. -- boris: know. this has been very well telegraphed, even for emerging-market standards. they are very well prepared for this. there are a lot of outstanding dollar debts that could potentially raise interest rates for borrowers, but we are talking about 25 basis points and talking about slow and gradual path. it is unlikely that will send emerging markets into the tantrum level volatility we have seen. vonnie: boris corby covering -- simoncovering bond and

forecast once again. tomorrow, federal reserve wrap up the committee meeting and on thursday, our focus shifts to the bank of england. treasury yields are climbing and expect the federal raise rates this year. joining us is co-portfolio to haveand it is great you. appreciate it. if w -- ifay cash wirp is raising, what should we expect tomorrow? >> as long as financial conditions are loose in december, and they raise interest rates by .25 of 1% and you will be more optimistic about 2017, but nonetheless, this meeting that they are having is a set up for december rate hike. david: no news conference but the statement. but they looking for in that?
are there things will be keeping and i out for? chad: they will talk about financial conditions, they will mention the unemployment rate and potentially be inflation rate, and they will say that it is transitory and moving back to 2%, which is a hint and a wink and a nod that december is on the table. as long as we do not see him in hinging of the financial system postelection, we are ago. david: you think it will happen? chad: absolutely. we are notaid, terribly hawkish believing the federal reserve will raise interest rates that aggressively and 2017. we believe they will go one more time and a terminal rates, which is that we think 1.5% is there terminal rates. david: what does it look like when they do that? how less is it to go back to that one and then rate hike more than one year ago? what does that teach about this time around?
tells us the markets are not looking at the one rate hike but the outer year dot plot and where they go in 2017 and beyond. as they start to reduce that expectation on the fed rate hike in 2018, you saw that the dollar started to react a little bit less aggressive as it did back to previous years. hence, the recently believed the dollar will increase value but it will not be in an aggressive fashion like we did last year. it will go back there percent to 5% higher over the next 12 months to 18 months. david: when policymakers try to assess the health of the american figure, you have consumer spending cap more recently, and squaring all of that, how do they see the health of the consumer? chad: i think the federal reserve is looking at mortgage debt, seeing if it is expanding at the normalized rate, and we are still below recessionary
trends. as well as they are looking the average population of people that are working in relationship to the overall population, where what they are seeing their is we are still well below where we we still have a lot of work to do and that is the reason they continue to hit will bes that they accommodated over the next 12 months to 18 months. they really do not want to unhinge the financial system but take a little bit of the speculative fervor off. david: you look at the fed and bank of japan and policies unchanged and there is a sense that after the term expires, that central banks are learning. that they are reflecting on what is happening, the data and making changes. is that a good thing for an investor to see a bank moving nimbly arguing to see the move with authority? chad: i want to see them moving
in an old-fashioned based on several factors. creation, economic activity, and the federal reserve not only has to look inward at the u.s. but the whole global and financial economic system and they have to be somewhat more nimble from the perspective. they are faced with a tough situation. global growth accelerating and the main contributor to the creation will be pivoting and that investment extending from china will decelerate over the next 24 months and they are acutely aware that very tense, the reason they have to keep a careful eye in the united states and economic conditions, as well as within inflation trends but also what is happening across the world. does thew much risk election and the outcome pose to investors right now? the banks financials tend to go up when donald trump is ahead in the polls and consumer goes up
when hillary clinton is ahead in the polls great what kind of reaction are you expecting on november the ninth? chad: if the financial system gets a shock based off of the election, then you can see the selloff, the reaction function within the treasury markets. with that said, over the course of the next 12 months, regardless of who gets in, we're huge stimulusa program, and that is why we are believers that the overall 2%nomy is going to go around to 1.7 5% and it will roughly be about 2% to 3%. we're not expecting this massive economic vitality, in part because of government intervention. thed: i was talking with ceo of that now last week and he the next president nine months to figure out what is wrong with the affordable care act to stop the spiral we are in right now. when you look at the health care sectors, how closly intertwined
is that with -- how close intertwined is that what the affordable care act and how do we see it with growth? chad: the health care sector is in transition. we believe when we look at 24 orths out, more gdp revenue gdp dollars will go toward health care, regardless of how the affordable care act pans out . we believe that federal government spending will move more dollars into that program to rectify the situation, so this uncertainty within the markets will be in the election and based off of of the rhetoric and rethink it is a phenomenal time to go out there and start picking through the rubble and look at the portfolio. david: thank you. chad morganlander.
this is bloomberg markets. i am david gura, time for the bloomberg says flash, a look at the biggest stories in the news right now. pfizer will discontinue development of an extreme mental cholesterol medication. the surprise announcement comes after the largest u.s. drugmakers profit fell short for the first time in three years. the drug was in late development and unexpected side effects of losing potency over time. forecasting the first annual operating profit in two years,
cost-cutting efforts after taiwan to control over the company. they want to revamp business and settle losses in solar panel operations and consumer electronics sales. shares have doubled since august. harvard university raised a record $1.2 billion in annual donations that running a tight budget due to underperforming endowment and facing internal criticism over management. it is the largest fundraising in higher education and the biggest for harvard. that is your business flash update. with just one week to go until the u.s. presidential election, a new nationwide poll has donald trump leading in the abc-washington post tracking poll of likely voters per trump is ahead 45%. joining us is alex, bloomberg's white house editor, great to speak with you. help me with the utility of a poll like that this late in the game. what can i learn from
state-by-state poll versus a national poll? is it more useful to be looking at north carolina or georgia rather than the headline number? alex: it is pretty to look at averages of state level polls in the battleground states, so look at averages of florida, north carolina, ohio, colorado, etc. david: what are undecided voters still doing today? hillary clinton is 42% and donald trump 41.2% to north carolina and an outstanding 8.7% of north carolinians undecided. power dating with undecided voters this late in the game? alex: we always go back undecided voters, how can anybody not have made up their mind in the election? for the campaigns are dealing with these people and the way they have historically done and they're beating the bushes, trying to convince folks to vote for them and trump is this
crossing the midwest from pennsylvania to wisconsin to try to get these folks to make up their minds. some polling indicates that undecided are tending to break her trump, which is not surprising in an election after the two-term presidency. david: the piece on bloomberg about how they prepare for the day after the election, donald trump continues with rhetoric suggesting that could be not present at the polls on -- that could be malfeasance active election day polls. both of the campaigns are gearing up to fight if they need to a november the ninth. alex: that is not unusual. you want to be prepared in case of recounts. both campaigns are lori -- up.ering i tend to think there will not be civil unrest or donald trump refusing to concede defeat as clearly lose and if the margin
is wide and they have lost the election. david: what to the closing statements look like now with go?week left to donald trump talking about the affordable care act and the prediction of premiums will go up about 25%. will he be hitting that hard until the election? alex: i'm sure. it is a pretty meaty target for him and i do not think many voters are aware that the premium increases really will not affect them. for example, where trump is today and what he ripped obamacare, premiums are going up about 30% for obama care customers. of people in the state are eligible to sign up for the affordable care act plans. if you get subsidies for your policy, he will not see the premium increase at all. 10% of thosethat people in pennsylvania eligible for the obamacare plan get the
subsidy, so i think the value is trying to convince the larger public that the premium increases impact them, even though they did not. story last night, a big in "the new york times" about the arcane tax donald trump used in the 1990's. it took me about two at three times to get a sense of that is going on. does this up traction with voters and i've interested in that level of donald trump's taxes or do they just want to see the returns themselves? alex: i'm glad you did not ask me to explain that. [laughter] if so many voters said aside the fact that donald trump refused and areses tax returns willing to vote for him anyway, i cannot believe that this "new york times" story, which was fascinating and fairly astounding, once you understood what was going on, i cannot imagine it will have a lot of impact on voters who have decided the fact that this releases his taxes and
this is bloomberg markets. i am david gura. analysts will be looking to see how the good deal maker has capitalized on ships digital sales and if it remained competitive with rivals. they are joined by cory johnson, inc. are also bloomberg markets on bloomberg radio with carol massar. let's start off with earnings. what is unusual about the way
they are reporting? isey: that -- the sec cracking down on large and small companies, particularly companies that want to make things that better than they are. electronic arts want to make it look simple. they have a lot of deferred revenue so they will go to the top of press releases with non-gap revenue and earnings numbers but those are not the real earnings. when you look at earnings over the course of any given corridor, they can be bumpy because the change in deferred revenue doesn't always show up when you look at that topline number, so that revenues can be bumpy and the bottom line can be bumpy. leveling out that the company has done with non-gap reporting is done. they will leave it up to likests and knuckleheads me to figure it out and look for a change in revenues and figure out how the business performs. david: long ago, there was the pokemon go phenomenon, how is that trickled down to companies
like ea? corey: i think the phenomena in of pokemon go was an amazing thing, but more than anything, it pointed to what was happening in mobile gaming and how big it is. most of the revenue that ea recognizes are from digital and a lot for mobile. only tens of millions of dollars be life game is successful, one of the most top-ranked in the itunes store and a big success so expect to have them focus a lot on that pokemon go notwithstanding. fifa stroking for the company. corey: ea is a big driver with the company but they have had and alsocess with fifa madden football. one of the best-selling games of all time. 's giant for them and their golf franchise has also done well over time but a lot of the focus will be on what is
happening in the first-person shooter business. their tactical game is so important because they hire guys who were actors and call of duty to launch this project and it is not done as well and perhaps call duty has done so well lately, so we will look between the lines and see him talk about emphasizing and getting into the fourth quarter and calendar of the fourth quarter hugely important and how it stacks up the call of duty. david: it is interesting to hear you talk about how important partnership is, whether it is fifa or battlefront, compared to competition, is ea more to partnerships like that? historically, they have been the big daddy of sports games added silicon valley. right. activision has taken the partnerships and has developed franchises and with solid game making, but the partners helped
a lot and you could see that happening with star wars, where it has floundered around this average game that was with fantastic characters and their taking those same characters and well-known stories to maxim -- to match them with terrific games. david: appreciated as always, cory johnson. you will have more on this in a 30 minute time for bloomberg markets on bloomberg radio. up next, the opening bells rang to open up and we will hear from the ceos again brent china, next. this is bloomberg. ♪

do and that's worth about $2 billion and we will return that to shareholders. that's what we're working toward. back in the u.s., 85% of stores are company owned and only 15% are franchised. how long will it take to transition? >> we will have an equity presence but by the end of 2018, we will have re-franchised all the stores we want to. we've got the ownership right and we got our capital structure in place and that's where we are looking for delivering at least 7% sales growth. vonnie: what about new offerings? >> we've got exciting new ideas coming out. we've got the naked chicken chalupa at taco bell

david: this is bloomberg markets. let's go over to julie hyman for her chart of the day. julie: i am looking at small caps which is a proxy for risk appetite in the market and it appears to be going down. is a lookof the day at the performance of the russell 2000 index versus the s&p 500 and the recent run we had of underperformance is the worst we have seen going back to january. we are seeing trepidation creep into the market about things like the election, for example, the federal reserve, etc. we are seeing that underperformance in those small
cap stocks. and we look at the vix are seeing volatility go up. you can see the past five days and especially today the jump we have seen to nearly 20 in the vix. if you look at the russell 2000 year to date and its performance, it's up about 3.7%. years, ifast several there is any pattern at all, the russell 2000 sort of exaggerates or exacerbate the up and down side move of the s&p 500. if it's a good year for s&p 500 on the large caps, it's a better year for small caps. this is the annual performance, this relative performance we are talking about. in 2014-2015, small caps underperform but for the prior two years there was an outperformance.
this is small caps as a proxy for risk and we are seeing people get more nervous when it comes to going long on stocks in small caps and large caps in this most recent environment. david: thank you very much. time for the bloomberg business flash with a look at some of the egg's business stories in the news. dobby -- abreu dobby -- the abu dhabi investors looking to buy softbank. they are also in talks with other investors. the severn wealth fund is also in talks to join the public area the publisher of u.s. state to buyas ended talks trunk to compete more aggressively with online news sites and advertisers. the bank set to find at the

the third quarters on track to grow at 3.2% which compares to a contraction the second quarter of 1.6% due to the terrible wildfires in alberta which hit the oil and gas sector. that sector has bounced back. 1.4%. grown by on we also saw some strength in canada and the most recent report in manufacturing, mining, construction and wholesale. salesakness on the retail were down by 0.2%. canada's consumers continue to be very leveraged. there are those who say that even if the bank of canada is considering a rate cut, consumers don't need any more incentives to spend. david: we've talked about the housing picture in canada. how does that factor into these
numbers? >> it was quite weak. the real estate and brokers sector had the fastest drop in since january, 2015, down by 3.2% because of the 50% foreign homebuyers tax that was imposed in vancouver in early august. from june-august in the greater vancouver area, 13% of home buying was from foreign money. that was down to just 2%. billion tom $2.3 under $100 million so that is a huge impact and people are staying away from buying high rent homes. september sales in vancouver are down by 32%. some economists have said vancouver in the housing market was already cooling so this may not have been at the right time. david: let's get to the finance ministers comments that will come out later today.
how is the bank of canada processing these numbers? does this fit into the conversation of a rate cut? >> in the last meeting, the bank of canada governor said it was discussed within the bank about the possibility of a rate cut. they decided not to do it and are hoping the economy will improve. this will play into the fact that although at a slow pace, but he is slowly improving. on the fiscal stimulus, we will hear the fiscal update from the finance minister at 4:00 p.m., 3:30 p.m. eastern time but the liberals ran on small deficits. fiscalid we will run a deficit of about $10 billion and now we hear they may want that to be above $30 billion because the economy is weaker than they thought. we had a growth counsel advising prime and mr. trudeau saying you
should have an infrastructure bank of about $200 billion and much of that will be private money and $40 billion coming from the federal government. will we hear about more spending? it has been hinted that they will probably not add more spending. if the economy is weaker, they get less revenue coming in through taxes and if they start spending on top of that, maybe the deficit gets out of control or is not manageable. that's the key thing to watch for today. david: we will be watching that at 3:30 p.m. east coast time. allocationsasset will join the team later today on why cash has become king again at 4:00 p.m. eastern time. in vegas, what happens does not necessarily stay in vegas, that story is coming up next. this is bloomberg. ♪

basically, las vegas is being replicated in macau. you had a lot of wealthy chinese going there to play and then there was a corruption crackdown. what difference did that make after the crackdown? >> it was huge. a place for these high to spend that incredible amount of money on that karate -- on baccarat. those people disappeared. a place for thesethe whole citt to a new type of customer. they are trying to attract the middle market. they may bring in their family so instead of the gucci and product shopping, they've got 18m and are planning events for the kids and taking them to historical sites in macau so it's a different type of customer. a big change from what it was but is it working and drumming up revenue and bringing more tourists and revenue to macau? >> we still have to wait and
see. the last two months, gambling has been up after more than a two-year slump. there seems to be more visitors coming but it's not a huge increase. this may be a slow build. david: you mentioned steve win, the american casino magnet and shall abelson is also involved. they are not new to the place. are they pioneering this transition? i can remember in 2002 when sheldon adelstein talked about macau and said we will build this strip they call the kotai strip that was reclaimed from the ocean. i thought it was crazy. he spent $12 billion building these properties. he has been way ahead of the curve on this. he's got a sheraton and a holiday in and is trying to
appeal to the mass-market customer they think will come from all over asia, not just china. about talk to us government officials in china. chinese growth is enviable from most of the world but it is slowing. what role is the chinese government playing in this question mark >> it's a big role. if you look at las vegas, it happened over 40 years. it was organic growth because casinos were spreading around the u.s. and las vegas had to think of a new strategy. in macau, it's the opposite. the government is saying we want non-gambling tourists and you need to create more non-gambling amenities. they have limited the number of gambling tables quite a bit. as new casinos have as few 100 by corrupt tables -- back a rat tables. it's a real government mandate to diversify. david: you can read that story
